Ace Attorney Abridged

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Not even the Ace Attorney games have immunity from being made into Abridged Series.

Get it? "Attorney"? "Immunity"?

Okay, anyway, Cardboard Lawyer has made a pretty good one, managing to turn the games into a Black Comedy.

Needs a Better Description.

Tropes used in Ace Attorney Abridged include:

Franziska: What in the hell kind of foolish language is it speaking?
Miles: Dutch.
Franziska: You bastard! Only you would make a Judge-Bot that speaks a dead language.
Miles: I'm pretty sure Dutch isn't a dead language.
Franziska: Of course it is, you fool.
Miles: You may be more ignorant than Wright.
Franziska: Hah! Fool! Don't even compare me with Wright. My ignorance knows no limits!
Miles: This is going to be a long trial...

Travolta3335, who is also responsible for Apollo Justice Abridged, has also made one. It provides examples of:

  • Butt Monkey: Phoenix, even moreso than in the games.
  • Catch Phrase: Several characters have one.
    • Judge: "You lose the internet!"
    • Ema: "I'm completely oblivious!"
    • Mia: "...with a totem pole!"
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Phoenix convicts all the culprits from the first four games in 23 seconds, in a montage set to the tune of "Scatman". The Judge then declares court adjourned... for several years.
  • Dirty Old Man: The Judge. Frequently lampshaded.

Judge: "I'm old, Mr. Wright. Didn't you learn anything from anime? All old men are perverts!"

  • Early-Bird Cameo: Godot, who refers to his actual debut, season 3, as "season negative one."
  • Everythings Funkier With Disco: In a certain flashback, everyone had afros, and the Judge was referred to as "Your Grooviness" rather than "Your Honor".
  • Fate Worse Than Penalization: Losing the internet is supposedly the worst thing that can ever occur to a character in the series, so much that Phoenix wishes for a ridiculous supply of them from Santa Claus to both make up for the ones he lost and the ones he inevitably will lose.
  • Meaningful Name: Subverted by Bellboy, who is actually a NASCAR driver.
  • Me's a Crowd: In the first episode Phoenix defends Ema Skye... with Hobo-Phoenix as the Prosecutor and pink sweater University-Phoenix as the witness. Guess who the victim is? Hilarity Ensues.
  • Shout-Out: The Judge shuts down a confrontation with Phoenix by shouting "I was FROZEN today!"
  • The Internet Is for Porn
